    Removal of Scripting Files and forcing me to use Partial View Macro Files in Umbraco 7.2 is killing me!

    So, Umbraco 7.2 decided to remove everything I know by removing Scripting Files and forcing me to use Partial View Macro Files instead.  Umbraco makes it seem SO easy to switch.  Basically, just use CurrentPage instead of Model and change @inherits umbraco.MacroEngines.DynamicNodeContext to @inherits umbraco.MacroEngines.DynamicNodeContext.  Sounds simple!  But nothing works...

    For example, previously I would do something like this to get the node type alias:


    So, I change it to the following:


    And I get nothing.  I can find no information on what I can access with these Partial View Macro Files.  After trying every combination of random words and spending an hour, I finally figured out it should be like this:


    How would I know this?  Why is it different? Where is the list of the properties for Partial View Macro Files so I don't have to try every word combination in the English language till I find the correct set of keywords?  Shouldn't these be listed somewhere?  I previously had a DynamicNode cheat sheet but this is now useless as it says the property is NodeTypeAlias which of course no longer works!

    How would I know to use DocumentTypeAlias?  Where is this documented?  Where are the rest of the properties listed to avoid problems like this?  This is not my only problem, I can't figure out how to do NodeById and all kinds of other things which are for some reason different now.

    Hi Tim,

    Check out the cheat sheet I'm linking to below. It's been a huge help to me.

    Hope this helps,
